Also try and check whether or not the slide where you insert the nails that you push the button down that way it is pushing the nails forward

Why want my paslode shoot nails all the way

Did you adjust the depth piece on the front? You can move this piece all the way up to try to nail deeper.

Also, I have tried nailing two pieces of oak together with no luck. It leaves the 2-1/2" nail about 1/8 to 1/16" above the surface.

Paslode 900420 fires only one nail and the battery has to be pulled and reinsert to fire again. After shooting one nail, the light alternate between green and Red. I have tried new fuel cell and fresh...

It needs to be cleaned and oiled. You can buy an electrical cleaner spray and oil specific for paslodes at Home Depot. You will have to take the back off (where the filter is) and clean it with the cleaning spray then oil it well. Put it back together and it will work like new again. You will be surprised how much difference it will make. Good luck

I have a 900420 gas paslode nail gun .When I push the gun down it is dead ,the battery is charged and it has gas

You need to remove the combustion chamber assembly and check for spark, remove 4 screws from filter cover and 2 screws from nose mount then carefully slide the assembly off, fit a good battery and press down on the roller arm below the fan, the fan should run, operate the trigger while the fan is running and you should get a spark, if not you will have an electrical fault, if you get spark bend the roller up slightly and see if that solves your problem

I changed the gas cylinder in my paslode framing nailer and now it won't fire the nails at all. The battery is fully charged and the whirring sound and smell of gas is evidenced but no nails are fired.

Make sure you have the correct gas cylinder. There are more than one type of cylinders for these nailers. If it is not correct it won't seat and gas will leak. Whiring sound is normal, fan mixing oxygen. Make sure "O" ring is in place under the gas cylinder.

Paslode nail gun 325 black not firing

Any time these guns become intermittent or stop firing but the fan still runs, the first the to check is the expiration date on the gas cartridges. The do expire and this will make the gun work inconsistently or not at all.

Gun not firing batt charge, new gas, fan goes just not firing

could be a couple things, first are there nails in the magazine, this tool has a stop when low on nails it won't fire, second is the lower probe bent not allowing full push on the cylinder to load gas. Give me the model number and I will find a print or you can go to and type in the model number and get an owners manual that has a trouble shooting guide in it for help. Let me know and if I have helped you with your question would you please rate this response accordingly.
